Around 50 Buckinghamshire Freemasons attended the first Memorial Day march to be held by Bletchley and Fenny Stratford Town council on 11th November 2018
Local Freemasons from Bletchley look after the Memorial Gardens so we were pleased to accept the invite. Buckinghamshire’s Assistant Provincial Grand Master Phil Blacklaw lead the silent march, with over 100 people joining, which included the local community and friends and family of local masons.
Amongst the wreath layers were Freemason Javaid Iqbal, who is a retired Lt. Col from the Pakistan army, and new Entered Apprentice Muhindo Mowavingi.
After the ceremony a bugler played The Last Post which added to the atmosphere. The local community were then invited to the Bletchley Masonic Centre where food and drink was provided.
The Memorial service was watched live from the cenotaph and the room joined in with the two minutes silence.
